Dad was, is, and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful, and less full of laughter in his absence.

And when you trust God, you’re able to be more patient. Patience is not just about waiting for something… it’s about how you wait, or your attitude while waiting.
I used to do my best thinking while staring out airplane windows. The seat-back video system put a stop to that. Now I sit and watch old’ Friends’ and ‘Everybody Loves Raymond‘ episodes.

I work in a business environment forty hours a week, and writing is what I do to unwind.

A lot has happened over the years. And while this nation has been tested by war, and it’s been tested by recession and all manner of challenges – I stand before you again tonight, after almost two terms as your president, to tell you I am more optimistic about the future of America than ever before.
While drawing, I discover what I really want to say.

While we are examining into everything we sometimes find truth where we least expected it.
It’s not difficult to take care of a child; it’s difficult to do anything else while taking care of a child.

He who gives while he lives, get to know where it goes.
